Jeter claimed to have established his house in Tampa Bay, Florida, in 1994 and that he was still a resident of Florida at the time, but New York State argued that he should have paid state income tax from 2001 to 2003 since he lived in the Manhattan apartment he purchased in 2001.
There is no income tax in Florida. Jeter currently makes his home in Miami with his wife, the former Hannah Davis. The couple put their waterfront Tampa property on the market in September 2020 for $29 million. In March 2021, they subsequently put their house on the market in Greenwood Lake.
Jeter’s behavior during a birthday party in 2002 that lasted until three in the morning was questioned by Yankees owner George Steinbrenner in December 2002, who said that Jeter “wasn’t entirely focused” and that the incident “didn’t sit well” with him. In a May 2003 Visa commercial, the two poked fun of the episode in a similar way that Steinbrenner and the previous Yankees manager Billy Martin did in a Miller Lite ad from the 1970s.
